We stayed here for five nights and wished we had read the reviews more carefully before booking. Hotel really shabby from the outside, although very nice location and lots of parking. Reception OK but not particularly helpful. We had paid for seaview and this was nice, but room was overcrowded (1 double and a single bed crammed in). Room was... More

Hotel offers a basic but price effective accomnadation, rooms (room 9, sea view) are small with basic cheap furnishings, although,at first sight, the room looked clean it soon became apparent that a layer of dust covered widow ledge and tv stand plus a reciept for an evening meal from a previous guest which housekeeping must have missed, although it was...

This place cost me £35 for bed and breakfast. I'm not a regular hotel goer so to speak, and I generally have low expectations ( that way I don't get disappointed too much) so I wasn't expecting miracles and I didn't get any surprises. I saw three members of staff during my stay which is probably why the bar was... More

We stayed one night and it served a purpose the room was so small you could not swing a gnat let alone a cat. It is really bottom of the line and if anyone writes a good review they must be on the payroll.

We made one big mistake that we didnt check the reviews and the pictures before our booking. So where to begin? First think was the exterior of this hotel, we arrived to North Korea or what? The second was the very similar smell to mobile toilets (on music festivals) right at the hotel's entrance all the way to reception. The... More

Worst hotel i have ever stayed. I paid extra for "sea views" and our window was block with other wall. When I went to complaint, they told me they didn't have more rooms. I asked to give back the extra money and they answered me "No way". My room was disgusting. My shower was broken and all room dirty. Disgusting.... More

Ok so we did book last minute and it was the first week of the Easter holiday in April (out of season?) BUT I did expect more from the hotel. The hotel advertised "Full English Breakfast included" there was toast, cereal, salad? and croissants available but the extent of a cooked breakfast was the offer of one piece of bacon!!... More

We went to The Mayfair hotel with Just Go Holidays and have no complaints, ok so the place could do with a bit of TLC but it was spotlessly clean, the food was very good and the service and staff good and friendly. The location is excellent as is the view. We had entertainment two out of four nights which... More
